To be in with a chance of winning, Mecca Doncaster is encouraging all budding dancers in Doncaster to upload a video clip of their best performance of the Meccarena dance to by no later than Wednesday, January 16.  

The dance videos to the one hit wonder routine should be full of fun and energy with plenty of jumping, jiving and 90s vibes. 

Michelle Winfield, Club Manager at Mecca Doncaster, said: 'We're so excited to announce the launch of our Meccarena record attempt, we can't wait to find out what amazing performers could be hiding in Doncaster!

'We believe bingo and top entertainment should be one and the same, and what better way to do it than to get the nation dancing. With an impressive holiday and cash prizes there for the taking, here's hoping the Meccarena winner hails from Doncaster!'

Professional dancer Kristina Rihanoff has been working with to help coach the nation on how to perfect the moves to the popular one hit wonder, and to help encourage people to get involved in an attempt to break a virtual world record for the most people doing the Meccarena.

Mecca Bingo's Meccarena virtual world record focuses on the fun and excitement people experience when playing with Mecca. The new campaign features a bingo lyric version of the original Macarena one hit wonder, with the hope that the popularity of the track will see the original back at No1 and a new record set for fans dancing the Meccarena moves.
